Vegetable Crop Update #17

July 30th, 2018 | Posted in: Crop Updates

Updates provided by Amanda J. Gevens, Associate Professor & Extension Vegetable Plant Pathologist, Interim Co-Director of Wisconsin Seed Potato Certification Program, UW-Madison, Dept. of Plant Pathology

Thanks to those that participated in this past week’s Potato Virus Diagnostic Workshop as well as the Langlade County Potato Field Day in Antigo.  We had fine weather (but for a bit of rain in the AM) and a good turnout.  Thank you!

Please note again, the UW Rhinelander Ag Research Station field day previously scheduled for August 2, has been canceled.  More information will be forthcoming.

In this issue we address:

  • Disease forecasting/Early Blight and Late Blight Status updates (still no late blight in WI, recent report in MN)
  • Cucurbit downy mildew update (none in WI, recent report in MI)
  • Potato crop status updates
